On a Tuesday, Christian Brothers Flooring and Interiors (CBFI) received a call from their General Contractor partner, Hensel Phelps (HP), that there was an integral need to mobilize on 30,000 square feet of moisture mitigation and self-leveling. A pre-mobilization meeting was held the following day on Wednesday, and on Saturday, CBFI mobilized on-site to meet this extraordinary request and aggressive timeline. Through extensive support from Uzin Utz, company-wide collaboration, and immense communication with HP, CBFI completed this task in less than two weeks. The job was nowhere near done - that work was solely on level 1, with 3 more levels of extensive floor preparation and self-leveling to be completed. The existing substrates within this building proved to present a number of challenges: substrates 1"-2" out of tolerance, operating rooms requiring 1/16" flatness tolerance to accommodate medical equipment, and outstanding crack repair needs, among many others. More than 7,000 bags of Uzin NC 150 self-leveling were used on this project. Despite these obstacles, CBFI was able to overcome and contribute to a beautiful facility that will undoubtedly change thousands upon thousands of lives. Over 2,000 square yards of Shaw Carpet, 70,000 square feet of Matter Surfaces bio-polyurethane based flooring, and 25,000 lineal feet of Tarkett rubber wall base were installed to make this all possible. The City of Hope Orange County Cancer Center is the most advanced comprehensive cancer center in Orange County, delivering world-renowned treatment, research and cures. Christian Brothers Flooring and Interiors is humbled and honored to have the opportunity to work on such impactful projects and remains incredibly grateful for the contributions of their Fuse Alliance partners.
